Question Will the SS/RS get SS or RS badging?

This question has been haunting me all night. I want the SS/RS to have SS badging because I want people to know that the car is a V8. If it says RS, it could be either a V6 or V8? C'mon, people aren't gonna know the difference between the bumpers. (CamaroScotty, this is where you come in)

Send a message via AIM to The_Blur
If you want the RS badges, you can talk to your dealer. Most will sell you badges for around $30.

yeah good question, i thought it was an abomination being the RS has been its own "body kit" model. Im looking at the SS/RS model so ive been wondering as well.

I would prefer the SS badging since those are my initials.

Didn't there use to be an "SS/RS" badge? I was sorta hoping to see something like that.

No car has ever displayed both SS and RS emblems. Interestingly though, the '69 Z/28 had Z/28 and Rally Sport emblems.

Maybe that's what I was thinking of...I just could have sworn I'd seen SS/RS badging somewhere...but that somewhere could very well have been in my own mind.

For the record - it's RS/SS, not SS/RS. This was because there were two engine displacements available in '67 and they were identified as SS350 or SS396 on the front grill and steering wheels. They would regularly say RS/SS350 and RS/SS396.

Sounds better saying SS/RS though....

off topic:

madhatter,
are you getting a cyber gray colored camaro? I am. I hope they make the stripes white or light gray (not just black). I think the lighter colors compliment the darke gray color better. IE: your photochop image

I'm considering either the silver or the lighter blue. Either way I want the white stripes...

I really love how white stripes look so subtle and refined on a lighter colored car as opposed to the more in-your-face appearance they have on the darker ones..
